A Twitch streamer was shaken up after her door seemingly opened by itself during a live broadcast, leaving both her and her pet pooch seriously frightened.

As one of the net’s top broadcasting platforms, Twitch is known for capturing some shocking and unexpected moments on camera — and this particular moment takes the cake.

Streamer Sabrina Perez was the unfortunate victim of one such incident, who was in the middle of chatting with her audience when the totally unexpected occurred.

Twitch streamer Sabrina Perez was left shaken – literally – after her front door opened all by itself during a live broadcast.

As she was talking, her front door seemingly opened of its own accord, causing her to scream out of fear as her dog bolted to the porch, barking up a storm.

The streamer pulled her dog back inside and closed the door, admitting that the incident had scared her out of her wits.

“I’m so sorry!” she apologized, walking back to her setup. “That scared the s**t out of me! Oh my god, I’m gonna cry! …I’m really scared.”

(WARNING: the clip below is LOUD.)

There’s no denying that one’s front door opening all by itself leaves plenty of room for questioning: was it a stranger hoping to break in, or merely the wind? Could it have been some sort of paranormal activity?

Perez later admitted that it was windy outside, although her door had never opened due to weather conditions, before.

“Like, it’s windy outside, but — I don’t know,” she continued, nervously looking back at the door while her dog chuffed. “I literally don’t know. The wind’s like, never opened my door before. I’m so confused. What the f**k just happened?”

This isn’t the first time a broadcaster has undergone a spooky experience on stream, by far: an IRL streamer was similarly scared out of his mind during a broadcast earlier in the month, after the lights in his hotel room began to mysteriously flicker just as he admitted to never having had a run-in with the paranormal.

No matter the case — faulty wiring, the wind, or pressure in the room — both streamers’ experiences make for a humorous and chilling moment for the Twitch history books.

Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
